How about a new publisher and a new series dedicated to new arrivals? ParentSmart Books inaugurates the ParentSmart series, which, with six titles in the works and more to come, is designed to be "a virtual `Parenting 101' course." Focusing on the care of newborns to three-year-olds, books like Joyful & Confident Parenting and How Your Baby & Child Learns offer tips on everything from baby bonding to baby-proofing. Penny Shore and the International Advisory Council on Parenting developed the content, and with their large text, ample illustrations and fill-in-the-blank sections ("My Support Network," "My Positive Childhood Memories") the books are as familiar and reassuring as a high school health workbook.
